. that the jury is out. it worked in massachusetts. it's not looking good in the early months. the question is how will it unfold. the president unfortunately got himself in a box on two issues. one nobody would lose their health insurance no matter what and the other idea is not everybody will be better off. some will have to pay more. that's the nature of insurance. for every story of yours, there's an editorial in "journal" where a woman can't get insurance and is very sick. it's a year to the mid-term elections. the website will be a memory by then. the question is are people signed up. >> we'll get back to this but we have another big story this morning. later today twitter will begin trading on the new york stock exchange. the company has listed its initial public offering at $26 a share. it's the largest technology ipo since facebook debuted last year. >> so steve should willie and i buy this stock? >> willie asked me that before. i didn't want to answer off camera. >> i know. i heard that. i pretended i didn't hear it. i asked you on camera. >> steve, should i buy twitter? let's talk about
